Some wonderful translations - some even read aloud well. A good mix from around the world - one after another excellent. The Pedro Salinas poem, "Wake up. Day calls you", is a glorious poem! Friends great to re-visit - one is reminded that every poem changes because you have changed since you read it last. ( )

It's the coffee-table version of a poetry anthology; each poems gets its own page, with plenty of space and one column. They give birth and death dates to the authors, but no hint of nationality or biography, and despite that, choose works that need cultural background to explain them. It's a book to show off, but not necessarily to read. ( )
